William Bedi Jr., 69, passed away Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020.
Mr. Bedi was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on Feb. 10, 1951. He married his beloved wife, Carol, on June 23, 1973 on the foul line of the church’s gymnasium turned temporary sanctuary, a location he found amusing.
While Bill spent years in industrial management, he spent much of his life as owner and operator of Bedi Construction. Bill’s impact on this world is vast, and he leaves a legacy of loving and serving others as a follower of Jesus Christ.
Bill and Carol had three children and five granddaughters, all of whom he loved profoundly and passionately. He was father to Kate (Kevin Blake, son Evins, 8), Andrew (Kristin, daughters Addison, 12, and Emerson, 9) and Timothy (Daylan, daughters Jolene, 4, Ramona, 2). He loved his children well and did all he could to provide and care for their needs and their families.
Nothing brought Bill more joy than time spent with his grandkids, and few things brought his grandkids more joy than time spent with their grandpa.
Bill was preceded in death by his loving parents, William Sr. and Annabell, and is survived by his siblings, Bonnie, Paula, Tom, Phyllis and Joe.
Bill’s passing will be deeply and profoundly felt through the generations of his family.
Bill was passionate about teaching and serving others to the best of his ability. Any free time and money he found was spent serving people and serving them in a way that honored God. Bill helped people in need all over the world through countless mission trips and service projects.
He was always willing and frequently insistent to help a neighbor or friend with a project. He coached youth sports and formally trained others to coach. Bill’s passion for sports contributed to the founding of the Brentwood Blaze youth football and cheerleading program. There is little that Bill would not do to bless the life of another person.
Bill was honored to be a deacon at Brentwood Baptist Church for many years, serving as deacon chair for one year. For years, he taught Sunday school, pouring hours of thoughtful preparation into his lessons. Conversations with Bill often went long and went deep. He never grew stagnate in his faith, pressing on to know God more and more. He sought the Lord and helped others do likewise. His family and loved ones take great comfort in knowing that Bill is with the Lord in glory, free from all pain and victorious over death.
A celebration of life service will be held on Friday, Sept. 25, 2020 at Brentwood Baptist Church at 7777 Concord Rd. Visitation will be from 9-11 a.m. with the service immediately following.
